I am ready to apply finish to my version of a TV Lift Cabinet masquerading as a French Country antique sideboard. Too late now to make the design fit the desired outcome --- i.e., stuck with the construction as is, --- I'm contemplating using a linear actuator to operate a false front drawer panel that opens so the Soundbar can be exposed. The problem is that there just isn't much room in the cabinet to place the actuator horizontally, as the soundbar blocks those positions. I'm not so committed to this automation that I want to rip out the existing stuff and optimize for the actuator. So I thought I would post a shop drawing of the geometry as it exists, and see if anyone has encountered --- and solved! -- a similar problem.
